Homemade Anti-Aging Aloe Vera Peel Beauty Recipe

Homemade anti-aging aloe vera peel with cucumber for a facial beauty recipe that tightens skin, smooths out wrinkles and fine lines while nourishing skin with moisture.

Buy an Aloe Vera plant at your local garden nursery and place in a light soil mix and do not add peat moss. Don’t over-water during the Summer, just place the pot outside overnight (Summer season only) and it will gather dew which is sufficient for watering purposes. Propagate by seed, stem or division of tubers, but never do new starters while the aloe vera plant is blooming.

Cucumber is an astringent that tightens the skin and smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines. Chamomile and green tea working together reduce puffiness, and the aloe vera gel nourishes the skin with moisture.


Anti Aging Aloe Vera Cucumber Peel

1 small cucumber (peeled and seeded)
2 ounces of chamomile tea (steeped and strained)
2 ounces of green tea (steeped and strained)
1 ounce of aloe vera gel
1 small packet gelatin

Puree cucumber until it resembles a paste, then strain through a sieve or cheesecloth and reserve the juice.

In a saucepan, combine green tea, chamomile tea, and gelatin. Heat and stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and transfer to glass bowl and add cucumber paste and aloe vera gel. Refrigerate until mixture starts to thicken, about 25 minutes. Apply mask to face and neck and let dry for about 20 minutes. When dry, peel mask from forehead to chin. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
